NJCS: Speedlight Portrait Photography with Joe Brady (Hensel)

Class Code:
UUU8273
Skill Level:
Everyone

While available light can be used to create lovely portraits, more often than not you need to add to or completely replace available light so that you can create an image with shape, depth and beauty.

Speedlight flashes, while feared by many people, can help you create the light you need - all you need to know is how to measure and control them. Join photographer Joe Brady as he shows you how easy it can be to effectively use these lights and a few simple light shaping tools to craft wonderful portraits.

From basic fill flash to full multi-light studio sets, see how to make speedlights one of your favorite tools for beautiful portrait photography anywhere.
